FORECAST SUMMARY:

We are set-up for some unsettled weather across Kentuckiana to begin the new week as a series of disturbances move through the region followed by a slow moving cold front. Take the rain gear along on this Monday as scattered showers and storms will be possible from time to time so take the rain gear along. While it shouldn’t be a washout, any shower or storm that fires up has the potential to produce some localized heavy downpours. With more clouds around, afternoon highs will be a touch below average into the mid and upper 80s. The cold front will slide through Kentuckiana late tonight and into early Tuesday so our rain and storms chances will diminish overnight with just an isolated storm chances in our far southern counties Tuesday morning. Highs will warm in the upper 80s.

Expect a nice push of drier air as Canadian high pressure builds into the Great Lakes for the mid-week. While highs will be warm in the mid-80s on Wednesday, but our humidity levels will be much lower so it will feel pretty comfortable by mid-July standards under mostly sunny skies. The moderate humidity levels will remain in place on Thursday with more sunshine and highs back in the upper 80s before some changes arrive to end the week and for the upcoming weekend. Our shower and storm chances will pick on Friday as another frontal system moves into the Ohio Valley. With the front potentially taking its time working through the area, Saturday could be a bit wet and stormy before we dry out to end the weekend with highs only in the low to mid-80s. Have a nice Monday and a great week to come!

TODAY: Warm and humid, scattered storms. High: 86. Wind SW 5-10 mph.

TONIGHT: Storms early, then a few clouds Low: 72. Wind W 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Partly sunny and warm, a stray storm south. High: 88. Wind N 5-10 mph.
